Lindy's Stamp Gang - November Challenge

Check out Lindy's Stamp Gang Challenge for November.


Here is my inspirational card. I love to stamp and emboss vellum.  The sheer vellum allows
the subtle pattern underneath to show through.  I was a bit nervous to try this color combo but
I think it worked out nicely in the end.

   Starburst Stain - Bachelor Button Blue
   Glitz Spritz - Gecko Green
   Embossing Powder - Midnight Bronze Obsidian

To be eligible to win, create a project inspired from the November inspiration board above using a minimum of two Lindy’s products. Then make a blog post sharing your project. Make sure to include links to Lindy's Challenge page and also links to the specific products you used.
